A flickr friend recently had some surgery and I just wanted to let her know that I was thinking of her. Here is the card I made for her, which she has now received.
Paper: cardstock (PTI);
Ink: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Walnut Stain & Victorian Velvet DI
Stamps: HA (Rose Background CG179; Old Letter Writing S4878; sentiment CL342); PTI )Background Basics: Houndstooth; Mat Stack I Collection)
Other: PTI Mat Stack I Die; PTI Flower Die; button (MME Lost & Found); ribbon (old stash)
The design for this card was inspired by THIS card by Debbie Olsen. Her card is so exquisite! I loved how she divided her card into three sections and of course I love the Houndstooth!
So that's what I did, I divided my card into three and used different stamps on each section moving from a light Antique Linen ink to a darker Walnut Stain. I also stamped the Houndstooth on two die cut flowers in two different colours before mounting them on with a pink button in the centre. The ribbon is so soft and velvety with a pattern in it, and I would say just about the perfect colour match.
Here is hoping that you are recovering well Dawn!
Have a wonderful day everyone!
